When traditional approaches are no longer working, it's time to think differently about how your business can change, adapt and grow
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused us all to make changes to our lives in ways that we couldn’t have imagined a few months ago. Businesses that have been fortunate enough to continue trading have been forced to leave their workplaces, embrace remote working and consider how they need to change their business post-lockdown.
With the end of the furlough scheme upon us and challenging times ahead, it is a key moment for business owners to rethink their plans, review their business models, look closer at flexible working and invest in technology.
With change, also comes the opportunity to look at current processes. One key area that is often overlooked in favour of the glamour of frontline sales, is the back-office finance and accounting function. We can help you with this.
Why outsource your finance support?
Many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are not able to employ a full-time finance team. Yet they still need the right advice to keep their financial affairs in order, control costs and remain compliant. Often key finance roles are performed by multi-tasking employees or business owners themselves, both of who should really, be focusing on what they do best – running and growing their core business, rather than filing a VAT return.
Typically, outsourcing is used in one of three ways:
- Basic Level Processing - raising sales invoices, posting purchase invoices, payments and bank reconciliations.
- Financial Controller Role - VAT returns, month-end process, management accounts, and cash-flow management.
- Finance Director Advisory - Budgets and forecasting, KPI analysis, and strategic advice.
